Principal's Message

Welcome to Coosa Elementary School, Home of the Bobcats!

At Coosa, our mission is to grow great leaders who dream more, learn more, achieve more, and become more. Coosa is honored to be the flagship Leader in Me school in Beaufort County, the 12th elementary school in South Carolina, and one of the Leader in Me schools internationally to have been honored with Lighthouse status. Based on Dr. Stephen R. Covey’s books, "The Leader in Me" and "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," the Leader in Me encourages students to make good choices through planning ahead, working well with others and taking care of their “whole” selves: mind, body and spirit.

All students who attend Coosa are considered leaders and are provided opportunities to demonstrate their leadership skills throughout the school year by serving as hallway monitors, greeters, tour guides, emcees for events, announcers, various jobs within the classrooms, and many more. In addition, all students participate in a monthly club of their choice. Each club gives back to the community through service learning projects.  

The success of Coosa is demonstrated through the involvement, collaboration and participation of dedicated students, parents, staff and community members. Volunteers and parents dedicate both valuable time and assistance that provide an invaluable support system for our students and staff! If you are interested in volunteering at CES, we’d love to have you!
